The members of the Chamber of Deputies also paid tribute to Paul Helminger, who died last Saturday and whose funeral took place on Friday.

The vote on the latest Covid-19 law dominated the agenda of MPs at the Cercle in Luxembourg City on Friday afternoon, with 31 MPs voting in favour, 29 against.

The text provides more details on the definition of terraces, and also introduces relaxed measures in the domains of sports and music.

The new Covid-19 law will be valid at least until 15 May. Until then, restrictions such as the curfew or the limitation of contacts at home will remain in force.

Prior to the parliamentary discussions and the vote on the new law, MPs paid tribute to former Mayor of Luxembourg City and MP Paul Helminger. The politician from the Democratic Party (DP) died last Saturday at the age of 80 and will be buried on Friday. A book of condolence is also available to the public at the capital's city hall.
